Thermador Oven Error Code E014
Thermador ovens are renowned for their advanced technology and precise cooking capabilities. However, like any sophisticated appliance, they can occasionally encounter issues. Error Code E014, indicating an unresponsive On/Off key, can be perplexing but manageable with the right guidance. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through a comprehensive troubleshooting process to address this error code and have your Thermador oven back in optimal working condition.
Step 1: Disconnect Electrical Power
Before attempting any troubleshooting, ensure your safety by disconnecting the electrical power to the oven. This can be done by either unplugging the appliance or switching off the circuit breaker.
Step 2: Clean and Dry the Glass Touch Panel
Error Code E014 may be triggered by a lack of response from the On/Off key due to dirt or moisture on the glass touch panel. Carefully clean and dry the touch panel to ensure optimal responsiveness.
Step 3: Test the On/Off Key
After cleaning, restore power to the oven. Try touching the center of the On/Off key with the flat part of your finger. If it responds as expected, the issue is resolved.
Step 4: Check the Wire Harness
If the On/Off key still doesn’t respond, disconnect the power to the oven once more. It’s time to inspect the wire harness between the user interface and the electronic oven control board. Examine the wire harness for any signs of damage, such as frayed wires or loose connections. If damage is detected, replace the wire harness promptly.
Step 5: Replace the User Interface
If the wire harness appears to be in good condition and the problem persists, it’s recommended to replace the user interface. This component is critical for communication between you and your oven.
Step 6: Evaluate the Electronic Oven Control Board
If, even after replacing the user interface, the On/Off key remains unresponsive, the issue might lie with the electronic oven control board. Consider replacing the electronic oven control board to ensure the proper functioning of your Thermador oven.Schedule Appointment
